One day it would be supremely cool if I was able to build my own bike. I don’t mean simply picking a frame and adding components, I mean literally building a frame from scratch. The opportunity to build your own bamboo bike from scratch is offered in Brooklyn through the Bamboo Bike Studio. I am not sure if this bike was built by the owner or not, but I spotted in the other day and thought it to be a strong likelihood –
I have never known, or even spoken to someone, that built their own bike from bamboo. If a reader out there has done so it would be great fodder for a blog post. We have covered some other cargo related hacks incorporating bamboo in the past - an Xtracycle rack and a trailer.
So if you have built your own bamboo bike, or know someone who has, or have used bamboo in some way please feel free to let us know.
